Arts - Wider Learning
Special days or activity weeks dedicated to a particular section of the curriculum where students participate in practical activities outside of their normal timetable with students other than their classmates.
For example, the Primary Campus enjoyed a week of learning themed ‘The Atlas of the Arts’ which looked at how the arts are represented from around the world, from Islamic art to ballroom dancing in Austria to tribal dancing in Africa, culminating in a performance extravaganza for parents at the end of the week. At the Secondary campus, Year 7 students enjoyed a wider learning day on African music where the whole year group gave a heart-felt musical and dance performance for visiting refugee children. There have also been collaborative days between English and Music, with a Year 8 day dedicated to Gothic literature in which students had to compose their own incidental music, and in and English/Music/Media collaboration where students created theme tunes for book promotions. Trips are organised to concerts in Malaysia and Singapore, either for enrichment or for music club members.
